Google Removes Almost 200 Extensions From The Chrome StoreSneaky ad injecting extensions is a no go.

Good news for users and bad for developers, thanks to a recent crackdown by Google, the search giant has identified and removed a total of 192 Google Chrome extensions that have been injecting ads to millions of users.

As it turns out, more than 5% of all people that have visited Google sites have had at least one ad injector installed and all in all, it has affected a total of 14 million users.

The recent report has also revealed that the search giant has received over 100,000 complains from Chrome users about ad injecting practices and that’s in 2015 alone.

What now? Well, if you are a developer and still want to inject ads, you can! As long as these extensions clearly state that.
